Is there ever a time when cutting a grandmother out of the picture is the right thing to do? If she has shown manipulation to the kids and parents, clear favoritism and poor safety measures (but does not admit to any of it)?

Poor gramms ...

  • If my mom doesn't knock of her behavior and get rid of this new man in her life she will be cut off. I've warned her too but lets see if she takes me seriously.
    (this guy is abusive and manipulative but she sees it as me not liking her with a new guy after divorcing my dad)

  • Hit enter before I was ready.
    But, because of that I do not want my kids growing up thinking her behavior is right nor will I put up with it.
    If they ask I'll respond with "Grandma made bad choices in her life and does not deserve to be around you."
